‘2014 A Year in Stories’ is at the halfway point, so Michelle Elvy collected the thoughts and ideas of many of the series’ writers about the work of other writers’ in the series, and Awkword Paper Cut published them here. Thanks to Michelle for her great work collating the special review, and Awkword Paper Cut for publishing it.

• PLUS ... writers read their stories in New York!
Pure Slush’s big project for 2014 is under way. It’s a multi-volume anthology called 2014, it includes 12 volumes, each volume devoted to a month of the year, and therefore named January Vol. 1, February Vol. 2, etc.
Each writer involved is contributing one story per month ... so 12 stories in all, from 28 of the 31 writers involved. (11 from two of them, and 7 from the last.)
And each of these writers is taking one day of each month - the 5th, the 13th, the 21st, for example - and setting his / her stories on that same day of every month.
So, for example, a writer takes the 10th – Friday 10th January, Monday 10th February, Monday 10th March, Thursday 10th April, etc – throughout the year.
What we’re publishing is a series of stories from each writer that arcs across the whole year, involving the same character or set of characters. Twelve days in the life of that person or people. So every month, as the books are released, readers can dip into these characters’ lives. Like a serial.
Each volume is being released (in print and eBooks) a month or more before the start of each month in 2014 ... so readers can read a story a day, in real time.
Written in the present tense, these stories can be read as if they are happening NOW ... which if the reader chooses to read one per day, will be like experiencing these characters in real time.
All the days of the month were assigned to writers who said yes, I want to be involved, put my name against a date!
